The article discusses the importance of maximising feed value of crops. The author says that many crops may be past their best, and harvesting as whole-crop and treating with an additive may be the only option to salvage some feed value. He adds that livestock producers and cereal growers throughout Great Britain are being urged to join forces to salvage the massive acreage of corn and enable these crops to provide winter feed for stock.
